of this increase. my commitment to k-12 education has also increased spending for our schools. but we must only allow for growth that our fragile economic recovery can bear. in this budget we've reduced the tax burden on local businesses, we've addressed increasing caseloads, and we've begun to diversify our economy. the social service net is stronger. support for education is increased. and nevadans will continue to benefit from the overarching policy of this administration throughout this economic down turn. that is, we cannot cut our way out, we cannot tax our way out, we can only grow our way out. [applause] as nevada prepares to celebrate 150 years of statehood, we must also consider how far we have come and prepare for what lies ahead. 2014 is not just the anniversary of nevada's statehood. it also marks the centennial year of the approval of women's suffrage in our state. nevada gave women the right to vote in 1914, five years before the rest of the nation adopted the 19th amendment in 1919.

for failed education systems, failed school systems to get their acts together. throughout the country there are some promising signs that we can bring schools and parents together to improve our educational system. san francisco public schools adopted a funding mechanism according to what's termed a weighted student formula. under this policy the more students a school attracts, the more money that school, its administrators and teachers receive. low-income students are weighted heavier and the funding forum as our children with disabilities, and those learning english as a second language. so there's incentives are schools to seek the more vulnerable population, and reasons for schools to differentiate themselves and to excel. imagine if we were to try and move in this direction with federal funding. allow the money we truly spend to actually follow individual children. students, including those without a lot of money for those with special needs, we be able to access a school which would give them a shot at having a successful life, a shot at earning their success and achieving thei

number of problems, poor education of how to adapt economically and a globally interdependent world. that could cause all kind of social dislocations in the united states. so i hope that's the great thing about it, that's one reason we should be so grateful to dr. king and not see him as a leader for black folks. we should see them as a leader for fairness and for dealing with the most troublesome problems we have by that message. if we do that we have a chance to address these problems before they become acute, before they become -- we have terrible social dislocations. so yes, i think these are very serious issues. i think the health of a democracy and the capacity people, it's no joke that we sit around and we said it would totally dysfunctional. and what i'm hoping is some of that comes out of culture. ever all local to sleep in a sense of cynicism about politics and don't see that politics start with you and me and what we're going to do and who we are going to talk to tomorrow, and how far we're going to reach to try figure how we ca can address any one of the serious problems

coming back from world war ii, going back to the farm and having an educated population that would have some political power. i am not suggesting this is a conspiracy by any means. this was simply people of social clubs, the circles they operated in, acting for their self-interest and for some of them, they thought this was the best thing for the country. these men represented disparate interests and for the most part they were technocrats. they viewed the world through this germans. some of them had grown up on farms and didn't if think much of the idea. their definition of reforming agriculture meant substituting capital for farm labour and replacing small farms with largely integrated ones that could supply the food company's with the ingredients they needed. so the ced and the business interests they represented lobbied against the new deal farm programs and they began to really successfully start chipping away at them in the 1915s during the eisenhower administration. in 1962 the ced published a report prepared by 50 influential business meters and 18 economists from leading univer
